Feeling peckish one Friday afternoon, a friend and I decided to get a quick snack at Sunnybank before going home. On a whim, we headed to Hot Cake House, for a yummy traditional Taiwanese Snack.
Despite being called Tokyo Pancakes, they are undoubtedly Taiwanese. Recently they have been doing a special where you buy three and the fourth one is complimentary.
With most of the flavours at around $1.00, it is very affordable, and a good alternative from the usual cake and doughnuts.
Pursuant to the deal, we ordered three and got four. They were served piping hot and fresh in a paper bag for consumption.
This was the Green Tea and the Chocolate flavoured hot cake. The insides were both very hot, but somewhat lumpy, as if they had not made sure the filling was well mixed. Nevertheless, it was still quite delicious, particularly the authentic tasting matcha.
Further to this, we had some of the more interesting flavours including the blueberry custard, and strawberry sweetie. Whilst the blueberry one had blueberry jam, the strawberry one actually had a strawberry mixed in with the custard. I found it particularly nice too, as the strawberry one had strawberry batter on the outside.
Price Range: $1 - $2 per piece
